"Before I go any further, I must point out that none of this ever happens in bad faith. No one has ever told me they love gays as a way to insult me (although people who identify as heterosexual have playfully called me a fag because "oh my god, I have gay friends! It's fine!") but as a way to connect with me." » 7/25/14 12:31pm Yesterday 12:31pm

Ok, so if I send an invitation to you for my party, but I send it to the wrong address, and then your feelings are hurt about not being invited to my party, I should just say "I'm sorry I hurt your feelings when you didn't get an invite to my party." and offer no explanation about what actually happened? » 7/25/14 11:47am Yesterday 11:47am

This book honestly made me wonder about how fucked the relationship women in America have with sex is. The stories that people tell about the mountains of inappropriate conversations this book spawned are insane. One friend related how a coworker he barely knew told him that she read it on a Kindle so that she could… » 7/24/14 5:07pm Thursday 5:07pm

I both agree and disagree with your assessment. I'm very much a fan of keeping my head down and getting the fuck out of the locker room. But if people are blow drying their pubes, that's going to result in a lot more loose pubes around the locker room floor, and isn't it to the benefit of everyone if we have the… » 7/24/14 1:35pm Thursday 1:35pm

Has anyone watched "The Fall" (tv series)?

I'm considering watching it on Netflix once I'm done with S2 of Hemlock Grove (which I meant to start last weekend, but then it was nice out), but I had legitimately never even heard of it before everyone started talking about how great Jamie Dornan was it in on the post about the 50 Shades trailer. I watched two… » 7/24/14 11:59am Thursday 11:59am

You're absolutely right. People dedicated to working out doing almost any program are going to evangelize that program. Crossfitters happen to be extremely vocal right now, but there is also an increasingly vocal majority these days of people who will tell you how stupid running is. Yoga people evangelize yoga.… » 7/24/14 10:40am Thursday 10:40am

I liked the movie in general, but I totally agree re: the barrel scene. We saw it in 3D (because the 2D showing we originally wanted to see was sold out and the 3D was the next showing) and the river scene made me completely nauseated. It was way too long and did not look very good. » 7/23/14 12:12pm Wednesday 12:12pm

I was both anti-feminist and a "cool girl" when I was young, so I'm right there with you. The article is hilarious, and so are the responses, but there is that sort of pervasive sadness that society is teaching women that feminism means these things, tinged with this sort of "I don't want to look at it because it… » 7/23/14 2:58pm Wednesday 2:58pm

I think even in its complimentary form though, there's still the other side of the coin that says "If you're such a catch and you're still single, there must be something secretly wrong that I'm not seeing." It also implies that if you are a catch, you should have already found someone to pair up with, which is the… » 7/23/14 2:43pm Wednesday 2:43pm
